Anyone have tips on running a predator carb as a blow thru.
Nothing crazy power. Ford I6 300 single turbo. More show than go.

No tips but would be interested in your 300 turbo build, build thread?
Nah, No thread. Its my dads actually. Nothing crazy. 49 f100 truck. TCI mustang II front, TCI rear 4 bar with coil overs. One piece glass front end and 3" wider glass rear fenders. The 300 is just a cammed, dual plane intake. He has a predator and wants to use. It does look pretty slick on top of it 300, but we also wanted to do a single turbo on the other side of the motor to balance it out and also bc you dont see this combo much. Should be a torquey SOB!

I saw one done in a mag., but no info on it.
I see a lot in NA and draw thru but not much as a blow thru. Looks like ppl are afraid the metering doors will blow open with boost. But i dont see why as the pressure would be balanced on both sides. IDK. Thats why im lookign for help lol.
It also looks like it uses a metering rod for the fuel much like an edlebrock?

A 49, that’s really sweet.
There are a few old builds on the ford six website but not much and those old draw through kits are kinda lame. I am interested in an efi turbo six build, would like to do one sometime.
They have to make a great truck engine with a turbo. Most guys on TTF use Holley for blow through,
maybe that is a better option. Either way I am sure it will put a smile on your fathers face when done!
